Yes they are mostly steinkerns but some have original shell material:)

The big one in question might be Nipa, but pictures from more sides may be more convincing.

Nice gastropods, BTW!

Can't help with IDs, but these smaller items might look better in Riker mounts. Are they available over there? (or something like them)

In the first photo, the two small gastropods look like periwinkles or dog winkles.  Let me pry my Pliocene shell ID materials open when I get back home (I'm on lunch break at work, lol).

I wish I could help with the fish verts, but my fish expertise only goes back to the Miocene. Before that, nada.

Yes, they seem to be outside the US. At the maker's website they're affordable, but I don't know if they ship internationally. If they do, seems like someone could go into business being the supplier for the UK or whatever country.. They do sell boxes-full wholesale.

Good luck on these "sand tiger" teeth. They're the Carcharinids of the Eocene when it comes to identification: I tried with these, but never felt comfortable with any of my IDs without additional photo angles.  Here are a few references if you want to give it a shot:

I ended up with around 6, but I kept second guessing myself. These Eocene teeth are not my forte. I feel more comfortable with the Mio-Pliocene Carcharhinids, and that's saying something! :D
